Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (R-MN), escorted by California Republican Party chairman Tom Del Beccaro, arrives to deliver a speech to the California Republican Party Convention banquet September 16, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Del Beccaro has been regarded as the most conservative candidate running for Barbara Boxer’s seat in the state Senate race.

AirTalk’s U.S. Senate race coverage continues with the top candidates vying to fill Barbara Boxer’s seat.

Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez have the lead among the top five contenders and Larry Mantle has already welcomed Republican candidates Duf Sundheim and Ron Unz to the studio. Next up? Former state Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro.

Del Beccaro has been regarded as the most conservative candidate running for Barbara Boxer’s seat in the state Senate race.

His most notable campaign positions include a wastewater recycling program to lead the state in water technology and, as a Contra Costa County business attorney, he’s also drawn up a plan to redesign the federal tax code, implementing a flat tax.

Del Beccaro has also voiced his concerns with security along the Mexico-U.S. border. In a Sacramento Bee article last month, he was said to have disagreed with Kamala Harris’ stance that undocumented immigrants are not criminals.

Larry Mantle speaks to Del Beccaro today on his positions, his campaign struggles in a largely liberal state and what he hopes will be the future of California.

Guest:

Tom Del Beccaro, candidate for U.S. Senate; lawyer and former chair of the California Republican Party
